Ways to get involved with children at our church:
Due to the pandemic, these activities are on hold. The Children’s Enrichment program is open and includes a virtual support center.
Sunday School Classes/Children’s Church/Cry Room/Nursery
Patty Brooks and Janine Immler lead the Sunday School classes for our children using the Deep Blue Curriculum on Sunday mornings in Wesley Hall at 8:45 a.m. Then during the worship service at 10:00 a.m., children can continue to worship with Patty Brooks at Children’s Church in the classrooms in the Main Sanctuary building. There are also Children’s Bulletins that go along with the sermon each week in the Narthex. We also have a cry room in the front of the sanctuary available during worship if you want to keep your children with you, but allow them freedom of expression as well as a staffed nursery at the back of the sanctuary.
Acolytes help in worship by lighting altar candles, assisting with the offering, facilitating communion, and doing readings and prayers as they feel able.
CEP, YEP, and Wesley Academy
The Children’s Enrichment Program (CEP) and Youth Enrichment Program (YEP) are for children ages 18 months to 12 years of age. During the school year, our programs include before and after care as well as our Wesley Academy. Wesley Academy is an individualized education program for preschoolers. Programs are also available during school holidays and in the summer. For more information, call Cherrill Foster At 972-291-1804.
Mission Possible Kids
Mission Possible Kids lead the church in the annual Operation Christmas Child shoebox drive, an evangelistic outreach to Third World children led by Amy Patton.
Mission Possible Kids also host the Great Cookie Caper with Tammy Easterling to provide a better Christmas to local children.
